Justice League Unlimited: The Complete Series (2004 - 2006/DC Comics/Warner Archives Blu-ray Set)



Picture: B+ Sound: B Extras: C Episodes: A-



Justice League Unlimited was the final series to take place in the DC animated Universe that started over a decade earlier with Batman: The Animated Series and was followed by Superman: The Animated Series. Eventually Justice League: The Animated Series was created combing the likes of Batman and Superman, as well as other well-known superheroes. The series had some one-off episodes, but had an overarching storyline that would continually add to the mythos. Justice League had a very big buildup until its epic end for the characters, subsequently morphing into Justice League Unlimited where new superheroes were added to fight the evils of the universe as Lex Luthor headed the Legion of Doom.

Justice League Unlimited (for all intents and purposes) was merely a darker, more in depth continuation of the original Justice League series. For the new series it seemed like you couldn't miss an episode, as every episode built upon the last. This created an immersive universe that would hook viewers from the very beginning, until its (seemingly) untimely end after ONLY two seasons.

The series was emotional, dark, and honestly one of the best DC series ever created.

We had previously reviewed Justice League: Season Two on DVD; at which time I expressed my extreme love for the series. For a further look at Season Two please follow the link below.

This set contains 3 discs housing all episodes of Justice League: Unlimited; note that the set DOES NOT contain any of the original Bruce Timm Justice League Series. The picture quality is definitely an upgrade as the 1080p, AVC encoded, MPEG-4 image radiates bright colors, bold black, and a crisp/clean image. In typical Bruce Timm style the series is bold and powerful, but lacks much detail as his style; which is not a problem. The sound quality is a lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo that comes heavily from the front, but the (Pro-Logic like) surrounds do kick in here and there. The sound presentation is crisp, clean, and clear without distortion.

The extras on this set include:

  • Creator Commentary on select episodes:

    • ''This Little Piggy''

    • ''The Return''

  • A revamping the series featurette that discusses taking the series in a new direction

  • ''Cadmus Exposed'' commentary with Mark Hamill and creative staff
